Make people feel better, taking a breath from daily life.
Mission: Invent, design and develop new sensorial experiences in order to innovate keeping solid roots into traditions. Oaxies® is in fact synonymous of well-being. The word Oaxies® comes from oasis, “ a human settlement that, in arid geographic conditions, uses locally available resources to create an amplification of positive effects, determine a viable self-sustainable niche and a fertile environment in contrast to the poor around.” (Pietro Laureano, architect and urbanist). Sustainability, tradition, technology and innovation are the core values that characterise us. Ideare, progettare e sviluppare nuove esperienze sensoriali al fine di innovare mantenendo solidi radici nelle tradizioni. Oaxies® è infatti sinonimo di benessere. La parola Oaxies® deriva da Oasi: “un insediamento umano che, in condizioni geografiche aride, usa le risorse disponibili localmente per creare una amplificazione di effetti positivi, determinare una nicchia vitale autosostenibile e un ambiente fertile in contrasto con l’intorno sfavorevole.” (Pietro Laureano, architetto e urbanista). Sostenibilità, tradizione, tecnologia ed innovazione sono i valori chiave che ci caratterizzano.

This manuscript further examines the role of rituals and authenticity, in relation to consumer behaviour, in the spa and wellness sector. In doing so, examples of wellness rituals have been provided and a review of the literature in regards to rituals has been given. Indeed, spas have their specific rituals, performed through the use of products or ingredients, in order to offer customers real experiences, with a total emotional involvement, that creates a multi-sensory journey. These experiences provide memories and positive emotions that, in an experience economy, push customers to look for similar events in the future (Lo et al., 2015; Richins, 2007). However, the factors that contribute to the formation of memorable experiences for guests, in a spa setting, are underexplored concepts and numerous studies call for further explorations (Buxton, 2018; Kucukusta & Guillet, 2014; Lee et al., 2014; Loureiro et al., 2013; Reitsamer, 2015). These would fill the lack of theoretical understanding of ritualisation and authenticity, within the spa services, whose role is influential in creating memorable experiences for spa guests.
